First road trip with 460

Postby cdeal28078 » Tue May 02, 2006 10:13 pm

I brought home a new to me 71 F100 today using the 460 for the first time pulling a load. I am very satisfied with the pulling power. I oulled out a 351w with 3.70 gears and an AOD and dropped in a stock 76 460 and c-6. I had some initial oil pressure problems but got them all sorted out and it now pumps 65 psi hot and cruising and 25 hot idle.
I also feel like it is getting better mileage.
I tuned and tuned the 351w and never could get over 14 on the highway. My speedo cable is burnt in tow right now but just going bym normal routine I feel like it is better. Swapping out the cable tomorrow and will soon have concrete data
Oh, the new 71 is in nice condition with little rust.
The seat is in real nice original condition and there is no rust on the rad/ support or inner fender wells. Even under the battery is nice.

I forgot to add that I went to a c4 before I did the swap. The 351w AOD and c4 are all sold.
